‘I didn’t give you the gift of life, life gave me the gift of you’
Hi, I’m Marissa – a fiancée, step mum, journalist, thinker, romantic, family lover, fur ball mumma, spelling tyrant and chocoholic from Sydney, Australia.
I am The Extra Mum and proud to be; the day I met my step son changed my life for ever.
Weaved into the journey of a step parent is a mixed bag of ups and downs. There are wins, struggles and everything in between. But this is the only ride I never want to get off.
I am telling my story to give people a peek into the mind, and life, of a step mum. Interested? Head to the blog.
